Fathers Day

Hey everyone and welcome back.  Well, we all know that Father's Day is not that far away, so this weekend I took some time to start on a couple of Father's Day cards.  The following is the 1st one that is completed and it turned out pretty good. I am working on the photo put so that is why I have posted so many.  I love the way the photo turn out, but I have a problem picking which ones I like the best.  Making decisions is a problem I have always had.  I tried to stick to what you might think as colors for men, so with that in mind, I used black card stock as the main card then did layers with Cream, back to Black and green, I then put a cream section inside the card for a message to be hand written.  This is the 1st time I have used more the two layers and I really like it, will be doing this more in the future

The cogs is a stamp that I colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I fussy cut and frayed the edges with the scissors. I love the frayed look on this stamp because it give it a torn look.  Remember HSN  will be doing another show with crafts on July 11th.   Below you will see the list of item for this project and as always if you have any questions please let me know.  Happy Crafting.

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

This card is entered in the       Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Wedneday Simon Says: Fantastic Florals

Ok here we are for another great Challenge.  This one is Fantastic Florals Challenge, this is just in time for Spring.  Maybe it can start getting warm!  The challenge can be any kind of flowers stamped, handmade, store bought, whatever kind you want.  So here is my take on this Challenge. 
 I used regular card stock, and I did an ink resist of the flowers on the bottom and the birds up top.  I sponged Diamond Press Ink in green for the grass and sponged the sky in Ranger Tim Holtz's Stormy sky.  The stamp set and the Folder was a free gift when I purchased the magazine Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I love the tree embossing folder,  and stamps they beautiful. I will let you know I had a little problem with the Stamps and I had to re-ink it over a couple of times. 

 I then Colored the tree with Spectrum Noir markers.  I just followed the embossed lines from the folder.

I then took the die and cut out the little flowers for the tree.  After the flowers are cut I took the Spe…

Video Easter and Spectrum Aqua

Well with Easter coming I was asked to do a project with   Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers.  I am going to show you how to dye Easter eggs with  Aqua markers.  Now everyone knows how I feel about Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir Products and this is just one more reason why I LOVE them.  So many things you can do with these products.  Now let me mention this is only my 2nd video and this one I did with a voice over so that makes it my 1st.  Please everyone be nice, lol, and if there is a reason to look on the bright side every person I  have spoke to tells me it gets easier and, lol, I guess we will see about that. I would like to also mention that HSN is having a 24 hour Crafting Event on May 9th watch for some great buys, you can shop for Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir items anytime.  Thanks and Happy Crafting!
